As of June 2012 Acquiris controls the certification process for the payment terminals adhering to the present C-TAP specifications v10.0.

The Terminal Certification Procedure provides an increasing level of confidence to Terminal Vendors and Acquirers/Acquirers Processors that the certified terminal adheres to the Multi Card Brand / Multi Acquirer principles of the SEPA-wide C-TAP specifications while providing an uniform and consistent cardholder and merchant experience. An overview of this certification procedure can be found on the corresponding page.

Prior to June 2012 terminal certification services were provided by C-TAP Authority for the Dutch payment terminals implementing the C-TAP 3.1 (and previous version) protocol and by EPCI for the Belgium payment terminals implementing the C-TAP 3.0 (and previous version) protocol. 

As of March 2013 the new payment terminals and upgraded versions are certified against the SEPA-wide C-TAP v10 specifications.

Typical payment terminal configurations accept EMV smart cards; magnetic stripe cards and provide contactless payment solutions.
